Sorry, I know it's a gross topic but I have done a search and can't find any info.

The last couple of days I have noticed little white dots about the size of a pinhead scattered all through the poo when I pick it up.
The dogs are regularly wormed but I was wondering if it could be worm eggs of some description?

could be tapeworm segments, bits of undigested food.

Probably fly eggs - the beginnings of maggots.

Hi PP,

I've noticed this too from time to time with Kitahna and when I asked some close friends of ours who have been showing/breeding for the past 30 years or so they gave me an answer but it was a very long time ago.

Basically from memory (but I'll ask them again and get back to you) it means that there is too much of something in the diet. I just can't remember what that something is :D . Let me get back to you. I started to feed Kitahna less of the dry kibble and it fixed itself immediately. It's too much of a certain nutrient. Kitahna gets much more fresh food than kibble these days and it doesn't happen anymore.

Thanks Tahna, I would appreciate that :p

I was just worried that it could have been worms or some other nasty :D

I have noticed that if I dont cook rice well, uncooked bits will come out looking like what you have described.

Maybe, maybe not. Difficult to tell without the power of observation.

My suggestion: Keep an eye out. If you see another stool with the "white dots", bag it and get your Vet to have a squizzy to ensure it is not evidence of an infestation of parasites.

My SIbe and Mal gets this sometimes too. They get Eagle Pack Holistic dry seafood and the same portion daily.
I think I might make an appointment with the Vet with some poo bags :cry: ;)
